Look Back

Things You May Not Know About Andrew 2: Andrew loves old maps. Here's why:

I love the decorative nature of the old maps (generally done to please the patrons that early cartographers had to turn to for funding), and the insight they give to society's worldview at the time.

I see collecting old maps as my "wealthy middle aged man" hobby. I'll sip my brandy and smoke cigars in my study as I examine my print of Giacomo Gastaldi's 1546 "Universale".
